My Fisher Paykel DD603I top draw whines when it is first turned

My Fisher Paykel DD603I top draw wins when it is first turned on then I get the red light and beeping noise. When I fist turn it on you can hear the wine of the top closing, but then I hear a lower gurgle inside then I get the red light and beeping. Not sure what is causing this. Any insight is welcome

    Let me clarify something on my previous comment. At first neither drawer was working and I was getting the red light and beeping noise. Then I took the bottom drawer out and dryed up the drip pan on the bottom. I used a hair dryer to dry out the flood switch as well. After this the bottom drawer works fine. It is just the top drawer that is not working now. One thing I noticed is when I close the top draw it does not seem to close as hard as the bottom drawer. So i looked on the back and noticed that one of clips at the end of the railing were was facing back. I reset it and not it appears to always flip to the back. I assume this is causing it not to close the same as the lower drawer.

The lid seal on the top drawer is faulty and needs replacement. It might be cut or damaged and is obstructing the drawer from closing. THis also may have caused the flood switch to trip as water can leak if drawer is not sealed.

It leaked before leading to this.
1- Unplug the power.
2- Dry out the leak.
3- Before taking off the lid seal, check if Lid actuator working by going to diagnostic mode. 4- Select LD.
5-Pull the drawer half way out so you can see the lid going down or not when you turn on by pressing lock button.
6- Press the lock button again to release the Lid.
7- Most the time it is a Lid actuator problem and your seal look good, then you replace the Lid actuator only.
8- If it is a problem with the Lid actuator and your seal look bad then replace all .

SOURCE: Top Draw on Fisher & Paykel double draw not closing

Make sure that the retaining tabs on either side of the drawer at the lower front are engaged properly. They sometimes don't positively engage and you will feel the difference when the drawer is pushed. Undo the tabs and re-engage them a couple of times to check. The drawer should run smoothly without resistance when they are engaged correctly. Check how the lower drawer moves to compare.

If the drawer is returning smoothly but feels like it's striking resistance towards the rear just before it's fully home, it's likely that the hoses are kinking/fouling behind the drawer and/or that the linkage support is broken.

If you have this older style white plastic linkage rods that hold the hoses, I would strongly recommend replacing it. It's the white plastic rod that has clamps attached to it with all the power, inlet and drainage hoses running through it.

You can get the 'retro fit linkage support' from an authorised F&P parts supplier. This is a retro fit that has specifically been designed to overcome the shortfalls of the original plastic linkage support. This consists of a metal rod and mounting plate with takes over the function of the plastic drainage support.

There are detailed instrucitons with the retro fit support which explains how to fit it. It was well under $100 when I bought one and worth the investment.

Good luck and remember always turn the power off before attempting any repairs.

How to get bottom drawer out of fisher paykel dd6031


I wasn't able to find an exact match to your reported model (DD603I?), but all of the DD60xx models appear to have the same drawer removal process:

2_23_2012_6_18_56_am.jpgI actually took this from the installation guide for the KitchenAid dishdrawer (also made by F&P), since it had the clearest images.

Hello, I have a Fisher and Paykel DD603I and both drawers have a red light on the play/pause button and won't stop beeping. Can you please help me with a solution to this problem?


Hello,
It sounds like the dishwasher is in flood mode. You would need to dry up the water in the base pan and test. The link below is a video that explains how to repair your fisher paykel dishwasher.

F&P dishwasher (DD603i) has no power to top drawer


No power to the top drawer needs to be verified.

Are you saying the lights are blank and when you press the start buttion nothing happens?

One reason the controller can shut the power is that the heater overload protection thermal resistor has opened. Unfortunately the only way to fix this is to replace the entire heater plate at the bottom of the drawer.

To confirm if the controller is operational or not, press Keylock and Start/ Pause button together for 5 sec (press Keylock first) and see if the Lights light up. If nothing happens then either the power has shutoff as mentioned above or controller is faulty.

Depending on your familiarity with such equipment you could try to replace and fix. I am not quite sure what the new model you mention is. I believe all DD603 models have power to the 2 drawers coming from the base board.

I have a F&P DD603I with NO lcd, just lights on top at the wash control panel. The HEAVY, FAST, and RINSE lights are all on at the same time. At one point the thing was playing the national anthem...


HI- I think your controller is faulty. I've only encountered the Star Spangled Banner issue once and replacing the controller fixed the issues. You may try to unplug the power cord for a few minutes and plug it back in and see if it resets but I don't think that will resolve it. I'd give Fisher/Paykel a call and see if they can narrow it down for you, they are often helpful.

Fisher & paykel double dish drawer top draw just beeps...


The controllers get very brittle & can break away from their housing, the reason it's rapidly beaping is because it thinks the door is open. PLEASE TURN IT OFF FIRST AT THE POWER POINT. Take the front draw panel off by pulling the plugs situated on the front behind the draws, the controller is at the top right hand side if it is loose then thats the problem, double sided tape will work but lots of it or try a wedge type arrangement. I know this is an old post but people refer to these for solutions much later.

Fisher and paykel twin draw


I'm not really sure. With the double drawer configuration, I know the top drawer is larger than the bottom drawer. If I had to take a guess, I would say the single drawer might fit in the top of the double drawer.
